Sounds a little weird.. but maybe it's only my bad english? :-)

I had the problem that localhost didn't work for the manager access list.
Squid 1.1.20 and Apache 1.2.5 running on the same machine.
ACL's are set to:

acl manager proto cache_object
acl admin src ( =The squid hosts address)
acl localhost src

http_access deny manager !localhost !admin

This construct doesn't work, if I remove "!admin", I get access denied.
2 possibilities:
1. localhost doesn't work.
2. localhost is not the local cache host. What is it then?

Any clues?
